The Gift of a Lifetime

This was Breathtaking...  Life is such a Gift.  It is so important to remember to enjoy every moment we have with the ones we Love.  Life is so short in the grand scheme of things

How easy, we seem to forget this.  This is one of our favorite stories, a great life lesson.

Two traveling angels stopped to spend the night in the home of a wealthy family. The family was rude and refused to let the angels stay in the mansion's guestroom. Instead the angels were given a small space in the cold basement. As they made their bed on the hard floor, the older angel saw a hole in the wall and repaired it. When the younger angel asked why, the older angel replied, "Things aren't always what they seem."

The next night the pair came to rest at the house of a very poor, but very hospitable farmer and his wife. After sharing what little food they had, the couple let the angels sleep in their bed where they could have a good night's rest. When the sun came up the next morning the angels found the farmer and his wife in tears. Their only cow, whose milk had been their sole income, lay dead in the field.

The younger angel was infuriated and asked the older angel "How could you have let this happen? The first man had everything, yet you helped him," she accused. "The second family had little but was willing to share everything, and you let the cow die."

"Things aren't always what they seem," the older angel replied. "When we stayed in the basement of the mansion, I noticed there was gold stored in that hole in the wall. Since the owner was so obsessed with greed and unwilling to share his good fortune, I sealed the wall so he wouldn't find it. Then last night as we slept in the farmers bed, the angel of death came for his wife. I gave him the cow instead.

"Things aren't always what they seem."

 

The moral of this story:

Sometimes that is exactly what happens when things don't turn out the way they should. If you have faith, you just need to trust that every out come is always to your advantage. You might not know it until some time later.

Things Aren't Always as They Seem.

Our Dear Friend, Sarah Jennsen Brown, owner of DyslexiaGames.com, wrote this.  It is a wonderful reminder, to take a moment to reflect upon the small Blessings in our life, especially our children.  Our time with them is truly fleeting and it is so important to learn to not sweat the small stuff.  They grow up so fast.  If I could bottle every moment, hug, kiss and scent I would and put it on and wear forever.  If you would like to see more of her work or learn about her DyslexiaGames.Com you can visit her at the link below.

I hear the whispers in the late night silence

I hear the giggles in the cool spring air

It's been an hour since we said good night

It's been an hour since the kiss and prayer

 

The day is over

It's not coming back again.

Tonight's a night

that has never been.

So let them laugh and stay up late

One more story, one more song, one more page

 

It wasn't perfect, it was barely good

They were just doing what they could

They were helping in their childish way

And in a moment they were lost in play

 

They'll learn to help

It just takes time

Little ones

have so much on their minds

Watch them laugh and run and play

they'll need a bath later today.

One more story, one more song, one more page

 

Never silence, not a quiet moment

Always questions bouncing off the walls

If I had answers I would be a genius

Somehow they think I must know it all

 

Just a moment and I'll finish sweeping

Just a moment and I'll find that shoe

another pancake, turning, burning smoking

Another inch, another question, maybe two

 

The day is new

Smiling at me again

This is a moment

that has never been

So let them laugh and run and play

One more story, one more song, one more page

We don't know how we came about this lovely poem and would love to find the author, so if anyone knows, please, share.  In a world that screams and demands a woman place is to know be hard, it is nice to see, softness as an alternative.  In fact it is okay to be soft because it is in a women’s softness that her true strength lays.  What a lovely reminder.  Enjoy

They Say You are Soft

They say you are soft?  so be soft.

you have nothing to prove.  nothing to gain from a forced toughening of your wild soul.

 

Be soft ? because you can because you are because you know  that it is life that has ?softened you that has taught you, that hard is

for brick, and wood, and cement

not for heart and soul not for you
 

you bend and sway you welcome you enclose you buoy you float you adapt and you do it soft

watercolour edges, blending with the earth and sky and sea

 

so be soft, sometimes it’s the very best way to survive
